San Diego County Fire Protection District  Ground Ambulance Service Area

San Diego County Fire Protection District (County Fire) provides fire protection and emergency medical services for most communities in the unincorporated area. Ambulance transportation within the Ambulance Service Area is provided by County Fire.

The Emergency Medical Services system designed for the Ambulance Service Area is focused on improving patient outcomes and reducing health disparities in our communities. This is accomplished by enhanced clinical training for our providers, novel approaches to the delivery of care that include new technologies, and system integration between the first responder network and the transport providers. Matching the correct provider, destination, or information for each service request is central to our goal of exemplary service. 

Some communities are served by our transport partner, American Medical Response (AMR). AMR brings with it a national network of support of resources should the need arise for disaster mitigation, clinical specialization and utilizing technology in the workflow of patient care. As a part of the Ambulance Service Area, AMR is our partner in training, evaluation and improving the entire system to meet the needs of our residents. We remain committed to an equitable, world-class service level that supports the diverse residents in the Ambulance Service area.
